criticized during the 2008 presidential campaign when i had the audacity to tell michigan workers the truth, that many of the jobs that had left their state for cheaper labor markets overseas were never coming back. so i understand that trade can create difficulties for some american workers #-rbgs and i'm not opposed in principle to supporting those workers temporarily so they can develop new skills and find new jobs. that said, let's look closer at how the federal government has been going about programs like this. earlier this year, the g.a.o. released a study entitled "multiple training and employment programs providing information on colocating services and consolidating administrative structures could promote efficiency." here's what g.a.o. reported on federal employment and retraining programs, including trade adjustment assistance. and i quote: "based on our survey of agency officials, we determined that only five of the 47 programs have had impact studies that assess whether the program is responsible for improved employment outcomes. the five impact studies generally found that th
